About Open the Doors

An excerpt will be read aloud while one scene will be performed with silhouette puppetry along with a full score of contemporary cinematic music performed on banjo, synthesizer, and piano. The story is set in rural South Carolina and deals with issues of grief, self-care and empowerment, expressed through the young protagonist’s dream state, featuring a family of mythical owls and a giant tree.

Open the Doors is currently a work in progress supported by the City Corps Artist Grant.
